Congratulations!

I’ve tried “googling” to see whether Ted or Betty Corday have a star.

his parents… executive produced and are the creators of “Days of OUR Lives” from 1965 to 1985.

Ken Corday has since taken reign from then on.

he seems to “win” emmys for what he’s trained at… music.

I don’t know… @DAYS has its dark days. I truly think, ever since, James E. Reilly, headwriter, died. DAYS has struggled

I’ve never thought Ken Corday truly minded the store… it was all in place… and things as they say.. never are the same again.

GOD love this genre… I certainly do

I so agree with you Patrick…I watched the dedication and i enjoyed listening to Ken and hearing his story…I think Day’s use to be so good and was a joy to watch but I don’t watch it anymore…it’s lacking of how it use to be and I so miss those DAYS. I think the only show that is the same as it has been since the beginning is Bold and Beautiful…I do like Y&R again since Sally and Kay returned even though a lot of people don’t, the only thing that is missing from Y&R is their classic background music…I don’t even care for GH anymore for it’s not tightly written, like other’s say that there are to many character’s…there are times I tune in which I will during the Nurses Ball…I wonder if we all are just bored for as we know there is no longer the likes of Douglas Marland, William Bell Sr, Agnes Nixon plus the production and the way the show’s are handled these days..

Do either of you know when Ron Carlivati’s writings will start????? This show is driving me crazy..how many times can Chad and Gabby be “kidnapped/held at knifepoint/locked in a vault” and is there no way to contact NBC or Sony and ask that they change the scheduling/taping to at least six weeks…this six months ahead taping seriously is killing this show…..sorry to rant…just don’t want to see Days cancelled while Ken C is out creating new shows like Ladies of the Lake….

I’ve mentioned on this site… hoping that @MF will thread the premiere airdate of RC’ scripts.

I’m with you… rant on

yeah… from what few posts I’ve read… this lady of the lake… argh ! is not going any where. which speaks volume … of Ken Corday OWN creativity. I don’t mind putting this out their.

what the heck can one say… his career was all started by his parents. and to see him in complete disregard.. if you will… that he owes his parents legacy respect and due diligence.

I really enjoyed RC writing on GH. I so hope the pendulum swings in all our favor.

LISTEN TO THE REPLAY: Soap Nation Live! With Michael Fairman Season Premiere With Laura Wright, Jason Thompson, Michael Easton, Maurice Benard, Stacy Haiduk & Kim Zimmer

If you missed Thursday night’s season premiere of Soap Nation Live! with Michael Fairman it was a broadcast full of surprises, fun, and intriguing intel as some of the biggest names in the soap opera genre helped kick-off the series 2018 run of episodes.

Joining Michael in-studio as guest co-host was General Hospital’s Laura Wright (Carly Corinthos).  The show began with a guest call-in to surprise Laura, which was revealed to be daytime drama icon, and four-time Daytime Emmy winner, Kim Zimmer (Ex-Reva) of Guiding Light.  Laura and Kim worked together on the beloved CBS soap where they played sisters.  Kim expressed how much she enjoys checking out General Hospital and the actors performances she has loved watching which included: Max Gail (Mike), and the recently exited Nelle (Chloe Lanier), among others.  Michael, Laura, and Kim bantered on the actresses time on GL and more.

Next, GH’s Michael Easton (Finn) joined the show where he discussed the release of his upcoming 20th anniversary edition of his book 18 Straight Whiskeys, working on GH opposite Finola Hughes (Anna) and Jessica Tuck (Cassandra).  During his segment, Michael Fairman asked Easton to play a game show segment he prepared for him, which was called, “Michael, Who Said That?” In it, Michael Easton had to guess which one of his many soap characters was he portraying in the scene in the audio clip, and it made for one of the highlights of the night.

Calling in from New York City was Stacy Haiduk, who is about to make her debut this week on the August 21st of Days of our Lives as Susan Banks, replacing Eileen Davidson in the role.  Susan is back on the canvas just as John and Marlena’s wedding is about to begin.  The question is: Will more of Davidson’s roles be played by Haiduk during her upcoming rum on the show?  We chatted with Stacy about working on DAYS, and taking over the one-of-a-kind role of Susan made soap-famous by Emmy winner, Davidson.

Then, The Young and the Restless, Jason Thompson (Billy Abbott) was our special guest in the studio.  Jason talked about Billy’s latest stumble back into his gambling addiction, Phyllis’ fling with Nick, and if Billy will be able to resist the seduction attempts by Phyllis’ daughter, Summer on upcoming episodes.  Jason fielded several questions from fans who called-in to chat with him during his segment.  As well, throughout the broadcast, several listeners were able to get through the busy phone lines to pose a question to our guests.

Michael surprised the listeners with none other than Maurice Benard (Sonny) of General Hospital as the last guest on the show.  Maurice was celebrating his 25th anniversary as Sonny on the ABC daytime drama series.  With Maurice, some of the funniest moments of the night occurred when Jason and Laura recounted what happened the first time they met him.  Maurice also expressed that this past week, he taped some of his most favorite scenes of all-time, and Laura said they have been very emotional.  As announced, look for a special Sonny-centric episode in September in honor of Benard’s 25 years as Port Charles’ top mobster.

Finally, one lucky caller won a pair of tickets to the GH Fantasy Event in Atlanta, Georgia, during our game show trivia segment, when he had the correct answers (with an assist from Jason Thompson) to the questions.

Nobody Does Weddings Like DAYS … Get Ready For John and Marlena’s

A Jarlena wedding written by DAYS head writer, Ron Carlivati can bring with it several things: delicious drama, fun, love in the air, and dire circumstances!  And from the looks of this just released extended :30 promo for next week’s episodes of Days of our Lives that is exactly what viewers can expect.

The question is  … through it all, will John (Drake Hogestyn) and Marlena (Deidre Hall) finally re-tie the knot?

From the teaser, it would seem there are many expected, unexpected, and surprise guests attending the nuptials including: Sami (Alison Sweeney), Susan Banks (Stacy Haiduk), Shawn (Brandon Beemer) and Belle (Martha Madison), and a person whose face is in bandages in a tux!  And in the finest of soap opera traditions, things look to being going horribly wrong before the wedding day,

But as the promo teases, this wedding is a weeklong event, and someone will not be going home from the wedding when a gunshot is fired!

And if that was not enough, it looks like Will (Chandler Massey) finally remembers his love for Sonny (Freddie Smith), and it appears a long-awaited reunion may finally may be the order of the day, but what about Paul (Christopher Sean)?

Let’s not forget the last tine Carlivati wrote a series of major episodes for a wedding event – that of the double wedding of Chad (Billy Flynn) and Abigail (Marci Miller) and Sonny and Paul – and we all know what happened that time!  Ben Weston (Rob Scott Wilson) showed up at the church just in time to drop the bombshell that Will was alive which put a major clink in Sonny and Paul’s portion of the big day.

So what do you think will go down?  Will Jarlena get to say their “I Do’s”?  Who possibly gets shot?  It’s a not-to-be-missed week of DAYS.  Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section below.
